Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“The Path of Self Destruction”
Text: Judges 21:25
“In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”
“The Path of Self Destruction,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. Self destruction is the destination of “those who do what is right in their own eyes.” We have seen these words of our text repeated 4 times in Judges 17:6, 18:1, 19:1, and lastly 21:25. These 400 years of anarchy and chaos in this period of the Judges happened because “everyone did what was right in their own eyes.”
The Proverbs warn us that:
“There is a way that seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death.” (Prov.14:12).
Without the Absolute Truth of God’s Word regulating our conduct anarchy and chaos lead us to self-destruction. We were on our Path of Self Destruction when we were arrested by Holy Spirit and brought to conviction of our sin. Confession and Repentance brought forgiveness and order into our life for the first time!
There are many today who are still on this Path to Self Destruction. We see this in our “changing world” today where there are no absolutes; truth is relative, defined individually, as “what is right in the eyes of the individual.” Confusion and chaos is the result.
The Absolute Truth of God’s Word brings order because it is Unchanging and it applies to Everyone Equally.
This is how our Commander brings Order out of Chaos in our life and the lives of those who are still on the Path of Destruction.
May our life as a Warrior be an “off ramp” from the Path of Destruction; leading others to the Path of Life! Ooooh Rah!
